The Cult is back with a new Weapon.
Michael Lavine
The Cult is back with a new Weapon.

In 1985, Love was the Cult's breakthrough album, helped along by the single "She Sells Sanctuary" — but the band switched gears, stripped things down and started rocking out a few years later on the Rick Rubin-produced Electric. Since then, the Cult has been through a few lineup changes and a few breaks, but core members Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, along with various bassists and drummers, have continued to churn out some heavy records, including 2007's Born Into This and the first studio effort since then, Choice of Weapon, which hits stores this week on Cooking Vinyl. Says Astbury of the new album: "It's kind of like the gloves are off. We're not trying to create a fantasy. It's just telling it like it is."
